Today we are talking about food, glorious food. Well to be more precise let's talk about how to get restaurant-quality food at home. As you know, I love food and I love to eat out. Herein lies my problem. If you have been following me for a while you will know I live rurally and to paint a picture: my nearest town is a 40-mile drive, which on highland roads can take an hour and a half.
I like to live a healthy mindful lifestyle. Sustainability is key to me. I have been researching how I can turn my kitchen into a sanctuary for me to create restaurant-quality meals. During my research, I came across Grundig, who make amazing kitchen appliances. Their core message is to Respect Food and with their cooking appliances, you will be able to create your own gourmet restaurant at home. This could not be more perfect a match for me, could it?
A bit about Grundig.
This heritage German brand is 74 years old and is hugely popular. Not only that but it is a household name in Germany. Now if you know me, I give a lot of credit to German manufacturing. Its home appliances were introduced to the UK in 2013 and when you see them you will really appreciate the quality, style and sophistication of design.
Grundig’s Respect Food initiative aims to educate people about food waste and to remind people that the fight against food waste starts at home in the kitchen.
Here is a bit about this amazing programme. Also, check out the below video
Grundig has a Global partnership with Food for Soul. Food for Soul is a non-profit organisation founded by chef Massimo Bottura (owner of the World’s No.1 restaurant in 2016 and 2018), to promote social awareness about food wastage and hunger through a wide range of initiatives in collaboration with chefs, artisans, food suppliers, artists, designers and institutions.
In the UK, Grundig has formed many partnerships to help in the fight to reduce food waste and to use surplus food for good causes, including The Felix Project, UK Harvest, Toast Ale and Pret Foundation.
Now let's talk about my favourite product.
This is the sensational 60cm single multi-function oven. OH MY WORD what an appliance to have. So, this comes with a standard Grundig 5-year guarantee and has a self-cleaning pyrolytic cleaning function, which reduces stubborn grease and dirt to ash which can be easily wiped away, no longer will you have to spend hours cleaning the oven! Where have you been all my life you little magic worker? It has a meat optimiser which perfectly cooks your meat to your preferred standard: you just simply pick rare, medium or well done. A couple of other features to note about its door: it has a soft close, so no more slamming shut and the 4 layers of glass means the temperature of the oven door never reaches over 70°c!
This sounds like the perfect kitchen appliance which would help a more nervous cook like me to get more adventurous and not worry about the consequences. I have never wanted an oven more.
If you are looking for any kitchen appliances, I would recommend checking out the Grundig range before you go anywhere else.
